You’re tired


You’re tired
(says Ruby)
so it’s good we’re playing

something entiring
and something
not entiring.

I tell you what to do:
make some dolls’ clothes.
That’s entiring.

And then I go home
and you have a wee rest
when I’m not here.


Rachel McAlpine

From a conversation with Ruby, aged 4
